Abstract

Apologues is a series of love poems that revolves around a community garden on Sehome Hill in Bellingham, Washington. Apologue refers to a tradition of subtle fables that communicate through stories of plants and animals. In that tradition, plants and animals appear in these poems alongside humans as subjects and as figures. Through these layered appearances and perceptions of nonhuman others, the poems attempt to question and meditate meaningfully on plant and animal lives even while they record human experiences of transience, intrusion, and care.
